Mini Monet: Fields of Tulips With The Rijnsburg Windmill

Tulips and windmills.  The color really got away from me for this one; turned into an Easter egg. Photo is edited to make it appear more real to the in-person appearance because I haven't been able to get a good photo yet

Mini Monet: A Corner of the Garden at Montgeron

Painted on a 4x4 tiny mat board. 

Mini Monet: Monet's Garden at Argenteuil

 A scan (left) and photo (right) of my extremely small version of Monet's Garden at Argenteuil.  The scan brings out some brighter color, but the photo keeps all the nice paint brush lines which I enjoy.  A good lesson for me in the subtleties of making a digital version of a painting.  Also it turns out that 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 inch square is not a standard frame size..oops.
The actual painting is here

Tomato Painting

Based off some still-lifes my father made.  Apparently I really like yellow.  And I wouldn't recommend eating these tomatoes.
